A late birthday card

It is my brother in laws birthday on Tuesday and this is the card I have made for him. He has actually away on holiday at the moment i was meant to get the card to him before he left but i completley forgot so I thought I would make a suitable card using this fab 'late' image from Mo Manning.

The papers are Wild Saffron by K&Co I have inked the edges of them using rusty hinge distress inks. The clocks were printed off on my pc and then inked using the distress inks and mounted on to card. I have popped a few of them up using foam pads. The tag was also computer generated and inked in the same way. 

I coloured the image using copic markers, here is a close up; 

I have been learning how to do folds in clothes recently, I think this is my best attempt so far. it took me ages but I am pleased with it. I have also been learning to colour fur so I have used this technique for this image too :) 

I hope you like my card I am entering it in to the following challenges; 

Mojo Monday - Sketch 
Digital tuesday challenge - dots and stripes - I have both of these in my background paper
